Ben Carson is trending on Twitter. Every time that happens, I automatically brace myself for the worst. I can’t help it. I’m conditioned. This time, it wasn’t necessarily for a bad reason. It’s just…unfortunate?

The HUD secretary is currently on a listening tour in south Florida and was visiting a housing project in Miami. Long story short, he got stuck in an elevator at one of the housing projects and had to be rescued.

Oh yeah. Former NBA star Alonzo Mourning was there too.

Here’s a video of the rescue.
